Although he supports her right to speak out, he says the graphic details she revealed should have remained "between us"
‘I maintain my position that all of the details should remain a private matter between us,” he said in the statement to MTV. “I do appreciate her support and wish her the best.”
In a 20/20 interview Friday, Rihanna offers a graphic account of the Feb. 7 fight with her then-boyfriend Brown, describing what she calls the terrifying blankness that seemed to come over him as he assaulted her. “He was clearly blacked-out,” she says. “There was no person when I looked at him.”
Although Brown declined to respond to her specific comments, he again took responsibility.
“I am extremely sorry for what I did, and I accept accountability for my actions,” he tells MTV. “At this point, I am taking the proper steps to learn about me and grow from my mistakes. I only hope that others in similar situations can learn from our experience as well. Abuse of any kind is always wrong. The rest I leave it to God.”
